yes, that is how the geronimo serve is assembled.  You will end up with an irrelevant plugin
bundle, but that won't hurt much.

I recommend creating the plugin the way we do in geronimo, with a maven project using the
geronimo car packaging.  The (transitive) maven dependencies of the maven project will get
added as plugin dependencies and installed when you install the plugin.  Note that this uses
maven coordinates and a maven repo for the bundles, not a bundle repository.

You can then either install your geronimo plugin into an existing geronimo server or construct
a custom server including your plugin.

hope this helps

there a way to install a bundle set as Geronimo plugins?
